Featured Golf Course Review:
Northampton Valley Country Club -- acceptable course considering easy tee times
Review by: Crusher I showed up as a single on a Saturday in July at about 10:00 a.m. I was sent out within 10 minutes, and played 18 in about 3 1/2 hours. The course was in generally good shape. The layout is a bit of a neighborhood course, winding through some townhomes, and with several street crossings between holes. I never like this sort of hole to hole distance, but it wasn't too bad. I think the traps and landscaping could be improved quite a bit. There are some long par 4's and testy par 3's for the average golfer. I played the tips, as a 7 handicapper, and shot an 80. Typically, I'd say that's about a fair course. With some improved asthetics, I think this could be a nice course. Many of the holes, considered on their own, are nice holes. All in all, I'll call it a 3 out of 5 stars because it's better than all those cow pasture courses out there.

Saxon Golf Course - Saxon East Course -- Very Challenging
Review by: Duffy Hacket You might not think it, judging from what you can see of #1, but there is a lot of challenge here. Mostly trees placed at just the right spots to protect pin placements. But on #4, a 350 yd par 5 (yes, 350 par 5), your tee shot is directly into the prevailing wind, which on certain days can drop your otherwise 300 yd drive at about 200 yds, if your lucky! Then, look forward to #s 6 & 7. Very tight! If you're a better golfer, try playing these as par 3s instead of the listed par 4s.
